TS New Year Giveaway: Third winner announcement

By on January 30, 2006, 2:54 PM
Congratulations exscind! You are the winner of the third GeForce 7800 GT, with still one more card left in our New Year giveaway. Enter here for more details.
The selection went as planned and consisted of TS' staff and moderators picking members based on their activity during the January 12 - January 25th period.

It's so unfortunate we can't giveaway more than four cards, having SEVERAL valuable members deserving the prize, luckily it's random drawing between those eligible, so we don't have to pick a final winner, best of luck next time!

Users from period #1 who continued participating (triple chance): barfarf, canadian, cyrax, DragonMaster, Eleventeen, mentaljedi, MonkeyMan, nathanskywalker, otmakus, PanicX, PUTALE, Rage_3K_Moiz, spike, vigilante.

Users from period #2 (double chance): Cartz, Cy6erpuke, exscind, fury, Kaleid.

New users added to the pool: AeonXX, Buttus, champmanfan, djleyo, Eko, gamingmage, jassim, JMag034, JMMD, Need_a_Dell, Nic, paulwuzhere, Race, someone, Vaulden.

Once again, we are thankful for your participation and we certainly hope you keep around, as there is still one more card in play.

Those wondering why you weren't included, remember that users are being hand-picked, meaning quality and relevance of comments matter A LOT. If this wasn't the case we could simply run a search of users posting over 20 items during the contest period, but the fact that we read everything you post makes a difference.

The winner has now been contacted through his registered email, and we expect a response during the following five days.

Great job excind. Man I wish I was you, I would have been doing cartwheels right now, I would have been on top of the world man. Only 1 more card to go, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed, and hoping for the best. But congrats excind, and have fun with that monster of power, known as the 7800GT.
Need_a_Dell said:
Good stuff Excind! Oh how I envy you right now! Private message me your posting strategy so that i can get the final one! (jks...not really :| )Congrats again!
mastronaut said:
Definately Congrats are in order! Sorry, lost power up here it snowed some heavy wet stuff. I envy you, can I have your old card? hahaha
AeonXX said:
Congratulations! I don't feel bad for not winning yet, because I read some of your posts and they're definitely quality material. I'm still hopeful of having a valid excuse to upgrade to a PCI-E motherboard, so there's no way I'm giving up until the fat lady sings.[Edited by AeonXX on 2006-01-30 17:38:20]

When I first saw the announcement, I promptly refreshed the webpage at least 10 times just to make certain I wasn't going delusional. After writing a program in assembly language, this was definitely good news to keep me sane! Thank you TechSpot for running this great contest, and good luck to all the remaining contestants.

kodrutz said:
Congratz to the winner, I think I'll pass the last one, I tried hard so far but didn't make it at least into the pool. It's safer to work something, at least you remain with the results, than trying to help others and get nothing, at least the satisfaction that you were few chances away of such an awesome video card...
JMMD said:
Congrats exscind. Let us know how the card is when you have it installed. What card is this going to replace in your PC?
asphix said:
Congrats man! Enjoy the prize!
mentaljedi said:
Enjoy mate! I'm sure you can find great use for it...
